If you go the brownie method, do not use the Alice B. Toklas cookbook.....
you might get the answers you need, but you'll have to wade through a lot of
babble and loud music. Wait, for most SMEs, you have to wade through a lot
of babble anyway.

I like Bill Swallow's tips. The original tips were...somewhat patronizing
and, well, the only thing missing was a tip about brownies.
But I'm just an old curmudgeon.
